NETZSCH Won Bavarian Environmental & Climate Pact Award
18 February 2021
NETZSCH is participating in the Bavarian Environment and Climate Pact with qualified voluntary environmental services until the beginning of 2024. Therefore, the pump manufacturer from Waldkraiburg was awarded a certificate by the Bavarian State Minister for the Environment and Consumer Protection, Thorsten Glauber.
"Environment and climate protection play a central role at NETZSCH. We are aware of our social and ecological responsibility", emphasizes Executive Board member and Director of Integrated Quality Management Johann Vetter. The goal is to avoid future environmental pollution through environmental friendliness and a sustainably oriented business approach. This applies to both manufacturing and products. As a globally active family business, the pump manufacturer has taken several measures and submitted them to the state government. Firstly, the gas heating system was switched to new circulation pumps and secondly, the old neon lamps were replaced with modern LED lamps. This will not only save a lot of energy in the future, but also increase the well-being of employees.
The Bavarian Environmental and Climate Pact is an agreement between the Bavarian state government and Bavarian industry. It is based on voluntary action, personal responsibility and cooperation. Since the natural foundations of life can be better protected with the help of voluntary and reliable cooperation between the state and business than with laws and regulations alone. The focus is on the proactive avoidance of future environmental burdens and not on their repair. The overriding goal of the pact is to sustainably improve the ecological, economic and social conditions of current and future generations in Bavaria.
